Happening at the Wineries

Wine Tasting resumed in Santa Barbara County Wineries on Friday, June 12, 2020. On Wednesday, July 1, the State of California closed indoor wine tasting rooms. Outside tasting areas are open, see seating information below.  See the Hours and Locations page for more information.

Wine Specials available for pick-up or shipping are detailed below.

Alma Rosa Winery


Alma Rosa welcomes visitors to Santa Barbara wine country at new outdoor Weingarten. The tasting room patio has been reconfigured and optimized to create a setting for guests to safely sample wines in an open setting with social distancing measures in place.


Visitors to Alma Rosa will be seated at private tables accommodating up to six guests, spaced six feet apart from other parties, in a tranquil setting shaded under umbrellas and arbors. For $20, guests can enjoy a selection of five wines from Alma Rosa’s portfolio of Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays, Rhone varietals and rose wines. Guests may also purchase bottles or wine by-the-glass to enjoy in the Weingarten. For an elevated experience, visitors may also book a private Ranch House tasting at the nearby Alma Rosa estate in the Sta. Rita Hills.


Located on Industrial Way in Buellton, just minutes off Highway 101, the tasting room is surrounded by several other tasting rooms, distilleries, a brewery, and excellent restaurants, making it an enticing gourmet destination for visitors looking to experience Santa Barbara County wine country.


“As we take precautions to collectively ensure each other’s safety, we wanted to offer people an opportunity to get outdoors in wine country and enjoy one of the best experiences California has to offer,” says General Manager Debra Eagle. “We’ve worked closely with local authorities to offer an experience which considers everyone’s safety, while still maintaining our region’s signature charm and hospitality. We invite everyone to come to Alma Rosa to experience what makes summers in the Sta. Rita Hills so special.”

Winery hours are Sunday through Wednesday, from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Thursday through Saturday:  11 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Reservations are suggested, but walk-ins are welcome. For more information, or to make a reservation, visit www.almarosawinery.com or call 805-691-9395.

Quarantine Wine Special

2018 Cinsault Rosé         Regular Retail $ 29.00  on sale for $14.50

Slightly lighter in color and fruitier than our last offering this 100% Cinsault Rose will tease your nose with aromas of raspberries and cranberry, and a hint of watermelon. You may taste just a  hint of blood orange and peach on the tongue, and a balance of acidity that leaves a nice clean finish. The fruit for this offering comes from the Santa Ynez Valley AVA.  Order here.

Casa Cassara is currently closed due to the closure of indoor tasting rooms.
